New Project Series “MAM Meets Museums”!
Mori Art Museum ‘Virtually’ Travels to Other Museums of the World
While movement and travels are limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have launched a new project where we ‘virtually’ visit the latest, ‘must-see’ exhibitions and museums around the world - made possible by the Mori Art Museum linking with the other museums online.
This is one of the Mori Art Museum’s undertaking to create opportunities to ‘virtually’ experience art from around the world.
The simultaneous livestreaming will be through the Mori Art Museum’s social media: TikTok; YouTube; Twitter; and Facebook.
“MAM Meets Museums” Vol.1 - Mori Art Museum x S.M.A.K. Live
* Conducted in English-language only
For the first edition, we will be livestreaming a solo exhibition of Anna Bella Geiger, one of the Another Energy participating artists, currently ongoing at S.M.A.K. (The Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art), Ghent, Belgium.
“MAM Meets Museums” Vol.2 - Mori Art Museum x Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen Live
* Conducted in English-language only
We will be livestreaming a solo exhibition of Anna Boghiguian, one of the Another Energy featured artists, currently on view at Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, Germany.
Initially as part of “MAM Digital” content facilitating people to enjoy art while at home, the “ARTIST COOKBOOK BY MAM” project was launched primarily on social media in May 2020 but it had quickly become one of our most popular projects to date, receiving more than 160,000 “likes” on Facebook.
By popular demand, the project in its entirety is now published in print as a book!
It features photos, drawings and stories behind the artists’ original recipes sent to us during the pandemic from all over the world. The list of contributing artists includes Ai Weiwei, Shiota Chiharu, and Sopheap Pich (see below for the full list).
Available for purchase at the the MORI ART MUSEUM SHOP (3F, West Walk, Roppongi Hills), MORI ART MUSEUM SHOP 53 (within Mori Art Museum) or MORI ART MUSEUM ONLINE SHOP.

This event is inspired by Yoko Ono’s SKY T.V. in 1967 for the Lisson Gallery, which she described as “a T.V. just to see the sky.” It broadcasts a live video feed of the sky from above the building where it was installed—a way to bring the sky inside, even if a space lacked windows. In collaboration with Yoko Ono, the Getty Research Institute and the Feminist Center for Creative Work will present a 24-hour video streaming of the sky via Zoom. A network of international institutions will participate in a live broadcast of the sky transmitted to audiences at home.
At a time of profound revolution and reflection, a time of restricted travel but great desire for connection, we seek to draw upon Ono’s invocation of the sky as a space of generative possibility and renewal. The event takes place on June 21, 2021 to coincide with and celebrate the Solstice and the Strawberry Moon Eclipse (June 20-24).
24-hour streaming; from 21:42, Monday, June 21, 2021
